Well folks, you would think that I would be happy seeing that my claim has been settled and was awarded I/U PT.
but I no longer have something to look forward to, I used to look and wait for the mail in great antisapation. Now I just sit read my paper, watch t.v. and watch my life pass me by. I know it's sad but I have never been a money person, as long as the bills get paid and food on the table and a very understanding wife is all that counts. But now maybe I can afford to take my lovely wife for a vacation whitch we haven't been able to afford before. Mabe rent a little cabin along side a river for the weekend.
I really appreciate what the va has done for me, I have never been treated better. I really feel that I don't deserve the benifits that I'm recieving,because I volunteered for vietnam, so why should the va pay for what I chose to do with my life? I made the decision with my eyes wide open and knew what could happen to me. I would never have made a claim untill my doctors said that I should.Before that time I never even knew that I could be compensated. I really feel that the people that were orded or drafted to go to vietnam should come before me. I was lucky I only came home to face prostate cancer, hearing loss, timitus and ptsd,more of you have more serious problems to deal with and I wish you well,best of luck and thank you for your service
